  •  Ooh! Ooh! The state should use _Kelo_! (0+ / 0-)

    The state has eminent domain power and can use it for "economic development"  purposes among many other things according to the Kelo ruling , riiiight?

    So, seize all of the property in California using eminent domain.  Pay everyone market prices.  Then sell it right back to the previous owners.  This resets the ownership record and allows for sane property taxation.

    Do it yearly.

    By allowing for stable government, this is clearly a "public purpose" for eminent domain, and in fact will help economic development!
